I finally made my way to Seattle; it had been on my list of places to visit for a while. It was so green! I’ve never been so happy to see trees in my life. Of course we hit the touristy, iconic Seattle spots…let’s reminisce! I love me some farmers markets and Pike Place Public Market delivered. Their produce looked so good they almost looked fake, they had a handmade section with local artists selling their work, and my fiancé was excited to see the seafood guys throw fish around. I was impressed with the floral selection — it was dahlia season! You could buy a bouquet of flowers for as low as $5. And I did. I so did. We had a cute floral display in our hotel for our stay. Across the street, you can check out the first Starbucks, and all around you can find pig statues. Apparently, taking pictures next to ‘Sue‘ is a thing, so I joined in the festivities. Sue, statue? We found the gum wall. I’m glad we got to see it in …

our backyard.

I’m throwing back to the time my feyoncé and I explored Memorial Grove (Fall 2015). The view is lovely, especially on a clear day like this one. Ok, this isn’t really our backyard but it’s so close, it’s basically our backyard. We can see our apartment complex from up here! There are patches of trees and scattered benches. Beware of poison oak and narrow pathways that look like trails – they aren’t trails! We got a good workout climbing back up a path we thought maybe led somewhere. Wherever you walk, you’re close to neighborhoods and roads. There were many people hiking around solo in this park. It’s the perfect local getaway when you need a simple nature break. We spotted a rock spiral, too, and decided it would be a good idea to walk through. It wasn’t. We both got dizzy real fast. Whoops! On the way back home we found a smiley happy bush. Now that’s crafty! Where do you explore in your neighborhood? Share below!
